AMERICAN FLAMINGOS - Pass-a-Loutre WMA, LA - 9/22/11-10/22/11

Hi All,

...and exceptionally, from regional locations further afield:

2 AMERICAN FLAMINGOS, an adult and a juvenile, first found on 9/22, have been seen continuously since at Pass-a-Loutre Wildlife Management Area in southern Plaquemines Parish at the mouth of the Mississippi River, and approximately 10 miles south of Venice, Louisiana. Viewing the birds must be done by boat, but tours are available.

LABIRD-L (The birding listserv for Louisiana) does not have an easily accessible permanent archive that can be accessed with a web browser. There is a way to download permanent post archives from LABIRD-L but you cannot view them until after you download them.

Birdingonthe.Net (BotN) instantly posts the LABIRD-L posts, and The NGR references BotN for LABIRD-L posts. However, the LABIRD-L posts on BotN roll off of BotN after a while and cannot be retrieved or referenced further on BotN.

Unless you subscribe to LABIRD-L and keep the emails, or download the LABIRD-L archives, or keep the BotN LABIRD-L posts somehow, any information from the BotN LABIRD-L posts needed for contacting or emailing LABIRD-L posters concerning their sightings, etc., should be collected quickly or else it will be lost as soon as the BotN LABIRD-L posts roll off of BotN. Usually BotN holds about the last 10-14 days of LABIRD-L posts.

Good Near Georgia Birding!
